Miguel Cerejido

Biography
Miguel Cerejido is a Canadian artist, born in Havana, Cuba on February the 26th of 1960. Graduated of drawing and painting from the academy of Plastic Arts "San Alejandro" in 1980. He took a degree of plastic arts licentiate at the Superior Institute of Art (I.S.A.) in 1985; he worked as a professor at the Superior Institute of Industrial Design, among other art schools in Cuba. He also worked as a specialist at the Centro de "Diseno Ambiental" (Interior Design) in Havana. He was an active member of the National Union of writers and artists of Cuba (UNEAC) since 1995 Presently he is a member of Art Kollectif Media Fundation Inc. in Ottawa, Canada. His explorations in painting have always been dealing with the possible nexuses between music and painting as well as, in a very particular way, "Images" that this other artistic discipline produces in his subjectivity This theme has been always present in his artistic endeavors from 1983 -while still a student at ISA-, encompassing all his carrier and evolving in many different forms, according to levels of perception in the artist's sensibility and to what is he focusing in his approach to the musical phenomenon.
 
Statement
The nexus between music and painting and ways of pictorially representing sound and silence, have been the main subjects of my work as an artist since 1980. This exploration has many facets from attempts at a pictorial representation of sound, to the creation of environments (maybe places or landscapes) that result from the sensations, feelings, states of mind and/or visions generated by music. My work has gone through different stages from attempts to illustration of specific musical work to explorations of aspects of the musical structure itself. This is, of course, purely subjective The final phase of production in my work is distinguished by a return to painting, almost forgotten in my eagerness in use it as a medium instead of a purpose, and the utilization of all I've learned through the years about shaping a pictorial - not musical - art work, which held all the spiritual power of music, as an autonomous entity, without moving it away from it's musical sources by means of referent codes, which, I hope, made possible the identification of the theme by the viewer. The resolution of this process continues to evolve as I grow as an artist and a person. It remains my principal challenge Miguel Cerejido
